The so-called Jefferson UFO
Thomas Jefferson's referral of William Dunbars report of a "phenomenon" over Baton Rouge is included here on p.25.
It should be remembered that this was in the context of a number of reports of meteorological data from what was then the Southwest US communicated by Dunbar. Skeptics feel that the object was likely a meteorite.
